Dubai residents will live, work, play and socialise in Metaverse not in the distant future in addition to visit government departments and complete transactions in Metaverse, says Sharad Agarwal, chief metaverse officer of Cybergear.
While speaking at the MetaDecrypt Web 3.0 Summit on Sunday, Agarwal said Dubai has always been at the forefront of embracing new technologies.
“We have started getting a lot of inquiries from government departments and ministries to make them Metaverse-enabled. It is just a matter of time before Dubai becomes the crypto and Metaverse hub of the world – not only the region. Initial steps have already been taken, so it is a matter of time before there will be a mandate for all government departments to start the onboarding process,” Agarwal said on the sidelines of the Summit, which is organized by Khaleej Times, the UAE’s first English newspaper.
“There is hard work involved, so you need to decide what services you want to offer and business model and then onboard community just like it exists in the physical world on to Metaverse. So it is a process which takes time,” Agarwal said on the sidelines of the Summit.
